Did you follow the European Games in Baku?

In the Netherlands it seemed like footnote news. They did report some, but always way down on the news sites. It hardly ever reached up to the header at the NOS (national broadcasting) site.

Nobody ever discussed the games at my work.

this seems to be similar to the interest in the Pan American games in Toronto
Except nobody cares even in Toronto

Yes, they actually reported it in Slovenia. It's kind of funny though that the first European Games were held in Asia.

In Hungary it was only reported, if a Hungarian athlete won a competition. In Germany I can't remember reading anything about the games.

From what I've seen in the media, the Pan Am Games seems more like a nuisance than an asset with all those traffic restrictions.

I only knew that Baku European Games exist, nothing more. There's no interest at all, for most people.

Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Cyprus, Turkey and even Israel are all included in Europe regarding sport competitions.

To me Europe is west of Russia, although obviously a city like Ufa isn't in Asia, let alone St. Petersburg or Smolensk, and Moscow isn't that far away either. The only part of Russia that is drawn on all maps of Europe is obviously the Kaliningrad Oblast. But whatever is behind Russia isn't seen as Europe in my eyes, simply too far away and Russia inbetween. I see Georgia and Armenia as some kind of European "exclaves", something like Australia, but closer. Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan have small parts in Europe, but they are Turkic/Asiatic nations and Kazakhstan extends to China anyway. Turkey is an Asiatic nation too, but at least the European and Asian parts are geographically clearly separated (and Istanbul is close to Bulgaria and Greece). Any comment?

The red boundary is the most universally accepted among present days geographers.
Yellow lines are other definitions, mostly adopted in the past.

There are even Europe\Asia signs on Ural mountains and on bridges over Ural river (that is weird, as often the same town results split by the border).
Istanbul is widely known as the only city located in two continents, but this is not correct, considering Russian and Kazakh cities crossed by the Ural river.

Anything east of Ural Mountains and west of Japan, "here be dragons"

Exactly, there are signs on the Ural River in Russia. I don't know when or why they extended Europe all the way to that corner on the Kazakh border. None of those lines in your image actually follows the Ural River in Russia, only in Kazakhstan.
